AWS CodeCommit: Code Examples

In order to use AWS CodeCommit, we need to set up a few prerequisites. First, you’ll need an AWS account with CodeCommit service enabled. Additionally, you’ll need to install Git on your local machine to interact with the CodeCommit repositories. Once you have these prerequisites in place, you can proceed with the following code examples.

Here are a few code examples that demonstrate how to use AWS CodeCommit:

  1. Creating a CodeCommit Repository using AWS CLI:
# Create a new CodeCommit repository
aws codecommit create-repository --repository-name MyRepo
  1. Cloning a CodeCommit Repository using Git:
# Clone a CodeCommit repository
git clone
  1. Adding and Committing Changes to a CodeCommit Repository using Git:
# Navigate to the cloned repository
cd MyRepo

# Make some changes to files
echo "Hello, World!" > myfile.txt

# Add the changes to Git
git add myfile.txt

# Commit the changes
git commit -m "Adding myfile.txt"
  1. Pushing Changes to a CodeCommit Repository using Git:
# Push the committed changes to CodeCommit
git push origin master
  1. Integrating CodeCommit with AWS CodeBuild (buildspec.yml):
version: 0.2

      - echo "Building my application..."
      - npm install
      - npm run build

    - '**/*'
  1. Using CodeCommit as a Source in AWS CodePipeline (pipeline.yaml):
    Type: AWS::CodePipeline::Pipeline
      Name: MyPipeline
      RoleArn: <your-pipeline-role-arn>
        - Name: Source
            - Name: SourceAction
                Category: Source
                Owner: AWS
                Provider: CodeCommit
                Version: 1
                RepositoryName: MyRepo
                BranchName: master
                - Name: SourceOutput
              RunOrder: 1
        # Add more stages and actions as required

These code examples demonstrate various operations with AWS CodeCommit, including creating a repository, cloning a repository, making changes, and pushing them using Git. Additionally, there are examples of integrating CodeCommit with other AWS services like CodeBuild and CodePipeline.


Remember to replace <your-pipeline-role-arn> with the actual ARN of your pipeline role in the CodePipeline example.

These examples provide a starting point for interacting with AWS CodeCommit using the AWS CLI, Git commands, and AWS CloudFormation templates. You can further customize and expand upon these examples based on your specific use case and requirements.

AWS CodeCommit provides a powerful version control system that integrates seamlessly with the AWS ecosystem. By following the code examples above, you can easily clone a CodeCommit repository to your local machine, make changes, and push them back to the repository. This enables effective collaboration, version control, and integration with other AWS CI/CD services.

With CodeCommit, developers can leverage familiar Git commands and workflows while enjoying the security, scalability, and integration benefits provided by AWS. By adopting CodeCommit, organizations can enhance their software development process, streamline collaboration, and automate their CI/CD workflows.

Note: The provided code examples assume that you have configured Git with your AWS credentials and have appropriate access permissions to the CodeCommit repository. Please refer to the AWS CodeCommit documentation for detailed setup instructions and additional code examples tailored to your specific use case.
